No, not the kind you're thinking of. We had a little rain, a little wind. And the electricity of 2/3 of the customers of My Deregulated Electric Utility went out. Mine was out for 67 hours. Many folks still have none. And the Electric Company is suggesting that they may all be back by Friday. Now the co-ops in Virginia and North Carolina got power back on for most of their customers in 12-24, and they had an actual hurricane.

And Feds are afraid of telling our enemies about our vulnerabilities.

So expect me to be on a rant about deregulation for a while. After I refill my refrigerator and write to all of my elected representatives and go to the 'town meeting' which will feature the president of my electric company. We are not amused.
